Isolated Resistance


Poster, 2020


Context

Cover concept for the first ever issue of digital publication Wester. The theme was Isolated Resistance—which pertained to the online activism taking place during the earlier days of the lockdown.

Challenge

One common challenge with design about trending issues is that you don't want it to blend in with the rest. It is hard to stand out when everyone is doing the same thing and there are countless people that are doing it.

Concept

With this cover, I wanted to commemorate the fervent effort to raise awareness and combat unjust systems (raised fist imagery) while questioning the authenticity of all information shared online (with the use of noise and distortion).


Aesthetic-wise, I chose this sort of stark, noisy, brutalist take to stand out from myriads of colourful, rainbow-hued or skin-toned design that oversaturated social media at the time.
